Avalski toranj, Belgrade
(4.5/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Go to the top of Avalski toranj for sweeping views of the capital city and the surrounding mountains and plains. On a hill just outside the city, the tower serves as a telecommunication structure and ranks as the tallest in the Balkan region. Upon its construction in 1961, only four self-supporting buildings in the world stood taller. After its destruction in the 1999 NATO bombing, the government and the residents of Serbia financed reconstruction through voluntary donations. Today it stands 204.5 m (671 ft), with 38 floors. Take the elevator up to access the cafe and observation deck at the top. On a clear day, one can see up to 100 km (60 mi) in the distance. Purchase tickets upon arrival, and consider combining your visit with a walk, hike, or picnic in the surrounding area.

  • Located on a Avala hill near Belgrade. On a clear day the view from the tower is spectacular. The elevator takes you high to the viewing platform that offers magnificent view over Belgrade and Sumadij...  more »
  • Great view , was a beautiful day so had 360 views over Belgrade. Coffee shop on at the top too. Was freezing when we went but worth the trip 
  • the first time I was at this tower-spring in may, it was warm, sunny, high-speed elevator inside the tower and a great view of the city. In the summer, when the evening in 2012, you can have a good time on the steps of the monument, the sunset is beautiful and the air is cooler than the city. Near the Tower has a restaurant where you can have a drink or a snack

  • Definitely visit it if visiting Avala. A view a the top, and a restaurant. (though, there could be a queue awaiting elevator) Great view, good service, nice little cookies served. :)
  • Tower is beautiful in every aspect, specially the views and sunsets from the caffe or upper floor. Unfortunately, employees are horrible, from bottom level to the top, including security guys to the bartender. No tourist guide to explain at least basic history of tower and what you can see from it. Very grumpy, impolite and not near the job thet deserve. We took 4 VIP cards that gives you free drink at the coffee shop. We got old CocaCola, crappy juice and water since these are included as free drinks, everything else is payed. Windows are dirty and oily from the hands of people. Second, there is no normal website from the Tower when searching in google. You have to keep digging on some other sites to get a normal web link. When you call the phone number, nobody answers. I would understand that if they are too busy but they are not. Every employee is lazy and with a bad mood. Shame for such a beautiful architectural monument.
  • Magnificent view from impressive tower. It can be crowded during weekends, especially afternoon.
  • I was there just a few months after Avala was opened officially 2010. It's not your usual tower you'd find in a city. Avala is special in such way that you can see the south part of Serbia and with just a quick turn of your head, you'll see the beautiful city Belgrade. It's quite a special experience because every time you turn your head around you spot something unique. The view is what changes everything. If I could, I'd definitely return to Avala.
  • Needs a complete overhaul to be a good resting place for families. No kids playground at the moment!
